Anne Cautain and Bernadette Touloumond suffer from hypersensitive reactions to electro-magnetic radiations. The symptoms include unbearable burning and terrible headaches, so bad that they couldn’t stand to live in the outside world anymore. After trying several other options, a cave has become their ultimate refuge. Anne and Bernadette’s cave is located outside the town of Beaumugne, on the edge of the Vercors plateau range, in France. To gain access to the area, a small ladder needs to be scaled while clinging to a rope. A sign reading “Mobile Phones Prohibited” is displayed on the hillside. 52-year-old Anne says, “I can’t take any sort of electro-magnetic waves, whatever they may be: Wi-Fi, mobile phones or high-tension wires.” She was the first to settle down in the cave, and is now spending her third winter there.

The article is a translation so there are errors. In addition, EM hypersensitivity (EHS) has NOT been documented as a genuine affliction and is NOT becoming accepted. It’s more like a perception of illness, psychogenic.
Here are two sources to check out on this topic:

The women say they are allergic to radiation. Ridiculous. There are different kinds of radiation we are exposed to all the time, every day, even before we were born into the world.
Allergic to radiation is a testable claim. They could undergo controlled tests for each kind of radiation and measure the physiological allergic response. That would be a breakthrough, an incredible find. But, I’d guess the results would not show more than a psychological reaction. Although, if you live in a cave for a while, interactions with others and to sunlight might be jarring. What is obvious is that these women no longer can live a normal life. But the cause for that is not as simple as is stated.
